A line graph showing a comparison of the percentage of female residents in orthopaedic and general surgery residencies from 1970 to 2010.
Flowchart showing the study design.
Photographs and illustrations showing the creation of the tibial plafond fracture surrogate model. The surrogate fracture fragments were placed in a moderately displaced configuration by an experienced surgeon, and a PMMA template was created to enable identical replication of the configuration. A three-dimensional (3D) laser scan was used to establish submillimeter accuracy in placement, prior to placement within a soft tissue-mimicking sleeve.
Box plots of standardized OITE scores for each year in training.
The virtual simulator, consisting of a display (right) and a haptic device (left).
Mean number of authors per publication in JBJS-A and JBJS-B original articles.
Mean number of publications during residency by subjects who selected an academic career (full academic plus semi-academic) and by those who selected a nonacademic (private) career.
This sample DIT dilemma presents a moral dilemma about the protagonist, Heinz, and whether or not he should steal a lifesaving but unaffordable drug from a local pharmacist to save his dying wife. The dilemma is presented in the same SurveyMonkey format that our residents viewed when they took the DIT-2.

Program director responses regarding resident access to existing surgical skills laboratories.
Virtual-Fracture-Carving Simulator stylus and software interface. On the left screen, the participant is carving on an intact-hemipelvis template with the carving tool, which carves both cortices simultaneously like a “jigsaw.” The right screen displays a 3D CT reconstruction of the associated both-column acetabular fracture.
